Is Portland to blame for our health issues?

I lived in portland for eight years in my early to late twenties. I played basketball about four times a week during that time and I was constantly plagued with knee pain of varying degrees. I would take time off and then get back to it, but the pain always returned. I just chalked it up to wear and tear after a lifetime of high end-pact activities( skiing, soccer, basketball, ect) Well, about five years ago I moved to L.A ( I know......but I still hate the lakers) and as if by magic, my knee pain subsided. I still play basketball at least two times a week and usually more, but my knees have miraculously healed at the ripe age of 35. So I ask the question: Is Portland itself responsible for the health issues of our blazers?

I know that cold damp weather is often said to aggravate joint pain. I am no doctor but I am curious, Is it possible for weather to affect ones health? Are the Suns and their warm dry climate the example of the opposite end of the spectrum? Am I, myself, hard and fast scientific proof of the power and magic of the sun?
